Somehow, Borat Just Got Better

So I've been meditating on the fact that the 'Borat' movie comes out tomorrow (though, as The Washington Post notes, executives at FOX can thank the mainstream media for hyping this movie up), and then I noticed something that I hadn't seen before: Larry Charles directed the film.

Yes, that's the same Larry Charles who was one of the early writers on 'Seinfeld.' The same Larry Charles who came up with unbelievable early lines, like 'Can't-Stand-Ya!' (from 'The Library'), 'And who's responsible for making hate mongering and fascism popular again?' ('The Limo'), 'Alright, so that's one tuck, and one no-tuck' ('The Trip'), and most of all, 'I'm not gay... not that there's anything wrong with that!' ('The Outing').

Charles has also directed episodes of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.' So basically, when you take Sasha Baron Cohen and add a writer from 'Seinfeld'... well, this 'Borat' movie is going to be unbelievable.
